Liberty Elixir Bright Ale
Beautiful bright yellow hue. Two fingers of clean white head on the pour. Vanilla and fresh cut lemon aromatic. Fresh cut grass, lemon curd and bready sweetness flavours. Dry finish with firm but pleasant bittering. Mouthfeel is light but chewy resin does it for me. Great beer.

Didnít work for me. Perhaps a dud bottle? Weak, indistinct aroma and then a bland taste and hollow mouthfeel. I can appreciate the style, like the Panhead XPA, but that has a more defined aroma

Liberty Elixir Bright Ale
A little overdue but championing on was my sample. Faultless in appearance this one settled a pale, pastel yellow and misty with fine conditioning raising up massive, pluming white crown that lifted a good inch out the lip of the glass. Massive waft of juicy pineapple and passionfruit on the nose with just a touch of tart lemon curd - so fresh and so clean. Assertively bitter on the palate. Ample fruit esters from the hops and yeast are clean and tight. Quite earthy and raw - the taste of bitter lemon and grapefruit peel is undeniable. Considerable amounts of pine, resin and vine clippings waft about. Light in body and it dances across the tongue like a sparkling wine. On that note it is also quite vinous in the finish with the most wonderful use of Sauvin hops. This is a delicious beer. Wouldnít go as far as to say session IPA, more a great Blonde ale - and that part is the most surprising. Lovely!!! (33cL, BB 01/12/16, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

110217. On tap at Tipplerís Tap. One seriously hopped up beer this one. Full bodied and packed full of juicy hop aromas. In the mouth there is a resinous that coats the tongue. While big on alcohol it is surprisingly easy to drink.

On tap at Brothers Beer. Pours very pale and the aroma has some stale cardboard notes in it. Flavour has some peach, lemon, nice hoppy notes over a very clean base. Pretty uninspiring.

Liberty Knife Party IPA
Poured a slightly hazy mid-amber with a one- to two-finger off-white frothy head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation moderate to high, lively and medium to coarse. Aroma of pine resin with hints of citrus (grapefruit) and tropical fruits. Taste with lots of nice moderately strong hops upfront followed by citrus (orange, tropical); moderate sweetness; hops not over-powering; well balanced. Light to medium body. Crisp, very smooth and slightly dry with a lingering, moderately bitter finish. Very nice.

Aroma is grass, hay, and Serbian cured meat with hints of cumin, some floral-tinged funk. Taste, despite what it says on the tin about not expecting any malt backbone, does include a delicious honeyed cereal note. Amongst the usual suspects of various citrus and floral flavours, I also get hints of walnut and custard and, despite its 8% it comes across as a very quaffable light-ish beer. Smooth and clean with a very lightly peppered honey cereal aftertaste.

Liberty Sauvin Bomb
0.5l bottle. Looks good this. A tall lasting and quite lacing eggshell colored head over a mild cloudy orange golden colored body. It has a pungent strong hoppy nose filled with peaches, cat pee, floral apricots and green pine. Quite delicate and really enjoyable to nose at. Tastes really good also. It has a good oily texture in the mouth and itís just about average on the near creamy carbonation. A mild sourness, tons of grassy hops here. Slightly dry and fruity sweet in once. Peachy and a little tropical. A really fine tasting one this. 07.05.2016

Liberty Citra Double IPA
330ml bottle BB 5.5.17.Nearly clear and more golden than orange, decent clingy head. Strong sweet malts, mandarin and orange zest, tangy lime, some savoury and spiciness, not snappy and has long bitterness on the tongue that will not wash away. Quite an alcohol presence though very nicely covered with the malt and big hops but oohh! look out, Liberation maybe a danger:))

Poured as pale straw colour with a huge bright white frothy head that retained extremely well and laced well. Carbonation high, lively and coarse. Aroma of sweet citrus (orange, mandarin) and hints of passionfruit - lots of fruits. Taste is similar but less intense than aroma plus with low bitterness on the front of the tongue. Light body.

Poured a crystal clear mid-amber with a two-finger beige dense foam head that retained very well diminishing to a nice cap and laced well. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma of grapefruits with topical fruits, pine and pale malt; strong and pleasant nice IPA aroma; alcohol well hidden. Taste of sweet citrus/orange upfront plus tropical fruits with the sweetness balancing the slight alcohol presence; moderate to strong bitterness; not as much citrus as expected. Medium body. Smooth with a moderate to strong bitterness and slight alcohol presence on the finish. Becomes very much ístandardí IPA-like as it warms.
